Please stand for our morning prayer.
We remember that we are in the presence of God.
Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Father, you created our minds and are the source of all knowledge. During this week of third-quarter assessments, enlighten our understanding. Free us from mental laziness and the tendency to take short cuts. As we study, give us a focused mind, a quick understanding, the ability to remember what we study, and the powerful assistance of your grace, so that what we learn we may one day be able to apply to the coming of your Kingdom.
We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
In the name of the Father, and the of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.
Will everyone please join me as we recite together the Pledge of Allegiance.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Please remain standing until the dress and grooming check have been completed.
Today we will begin 3rd Quarter Assessments, with English/Computer/and Psychology AP. Tomorrow you assessments will be Math/Foreign Language/Reading/ESL.
Congratulations to the Saint Stanislaus Sailing Team for winning the Mississippi High School Team Racing State Championship this weekend. Competing teams sailed in moderate conditions under cloudy skies on Saturday and Sunday. Deteriorating weather conditions caused the racing to be cut short on Sunday, but enough races had been sailed to complete the regatta. Saint Stanislaus, with a 5 win – 0 loss record, won the championship. Saint Stanislaus also won the overall category which included out-of-state teams. Sailing for Saint Stanislaus were: Charlie Breath, Michael Burns, Frederick Cabell, Hanna Dawley, William Diaz, Thomas Duffy, Joel Grumme, Joshua Grumme, Graham Kalom, Wallace St. Paul, and Jack Winstead. Congratulations Sailing Rocks!!

Fundraising for the upcoming Easter trip to Klagetoh is underway, and this week there are two ways to support the mission. Tomorrow there will be a bake sale in Diboll Plaza. Stop by and buy some treats during the two lunch periods.
There is also a week-long money drop competition between grades. Money buckets are in the resource center in front of the display case. The grade that raises the most money will win an afternoon at the beach later this semester.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from author C.S. Lewis, who once said, “The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
